MIPCOM Editor’s pick: Greatest Tank Battles

When it comes to military history wonks, selling Greatest Tank Battles should be like shooting fish in a barrel. How can any right-minded wonk miss a chance to experience first-hand, through the magic of CGI, the impact of an 88mm from a German Tiger, or the jet-fueled energy of an M1A1 Abrams?
